Windows P2V on VirtualBox 2.1.2

Thanks to all who commented on my past entry.

Migrating VMware->VirtualBox: Windows XP/2003 guest
For Windows XP/2003, I made only 2 changes and they booted successfully.
And I'm sorry I don't have answers to all of the questions.

I find Jason's comment interesting.

this worked great on VBox 2.1.2! With the comments from Robert, the guest did speed up noticeably and was finally able to P2V a Windows host into a usable Virutal Box guest.

I wonder how Jason P2V'ed his Windows. Either used VMware's tool or backup/restore or ... ?
Comments:

Yes it was VMware's free converter. I've had mixed success with older version of converter, but with the latest one, I was able to successfully P2V the host and take it into VirtualBox from there.

You are correct. I did use converter.
